It's a tough job but someone has to do it. I've gotta keep the "YOLO" people in check

Re: stock wheels back on....

Strasse SV5 forged monoblocks ordered. Brushed gunmetal finished. Race Spec weight reduction pockets.

Looks like I might have to break my rules some and ditch some of the chrome to make the look work. Might eat some crow and do the window trim and grill rings. Leave chrome air intakes and tips.

Also leave chrome badging. Maybe rebadge with SRT
This wheel:



This finish:

Wow ... glad you're all ok.

So once again I pat myself on the back for really liking my stock monky rims.

If I had it all to do over again I'd stick with the stockers and continue to purchase Satan's favorite tire, the 295/45r20 all season run flat Pirelli. However, now that I've opened Pandora's box it's hard to close it lol

Re: stock wheels back on....

^ Those are bad ass tires. I'm OCD though so the speedometer being off would have made me crazy. with the 22s it's not even a 1mph difference

Yeah it's off by about 2mph. But 50k tread warranty and dws still $900 cheaper than a set of stockers.

Re: stock wheels back on....

New Wheels Came in! God I hope they fit well. The Strasse didn't work out so I went with a Niche Forged Monoblock.

Here is a sneak peak. These are so damn light holy shit! My Iforged were about as light as a 3-piece can get and they were 33lbs.

These are 26lbs!
